Thursday, June 17

how lucky we are.

Is it June 17th? Looking outside, you really wouldn't think so. According to Krem2news, June 17th, 2010 is a record LOW day. At the "height" (hahaha) of the cold day, it was 39 degrees. You hear all about record HIGH days, but record cold days?? Yeah. Uh huh. Fabulous! What happened to the sunshine??
 I guess when I got dressed today I was feeling the mood of the cold weather because I dressed a lot differently than my normal bright colored florals and "feminine" style. The first thing I grabbed was my plaid shirt....and from there my tights. I thought about throwing on my same old cutoffs, but wasn't feeling it so instead I went for my green AE studded skirt that sort of makes me a badass? Haha. Last, a pink scarf just to add that touch of "cuteness" that I usually wear.

 the best part about summer is going without makeup. I love it!! I literally swipe on a little tiny bit of mascara and maybe some concealer, and I'm gone. I absolutely hate getting out of the shower in the morning and having to remove all my mascara. Same with at night before bed. It's so annoying!
My lovely dear bought me these shoesss!! I have been lusting for them for months and he got them for me as a graduation present downtown at a thrift store!! Ahhh! He's the best. I've been a little mopey around the house because he left early in the week for his big annual europe excursion. But thank god, he is only gone for 2 weeks and not 2 months. However, the mopey periods are short and keeping myself busy has been key. It also takes me back to a couple months ago when he wasn't mine to miss, and I am basking in the fact that he is now :).
 I can't decide if I like these boots with my skirtt and such. Hmm.
To keep busy, I thought I'd show you in pictures some of what I've been up to.I got a new wallet and it seems the most accurate way to represent all the shopping I've been doing. Hehe. I got soooo much money from graduation and put away a huge chunk of change, so I've let myself go a little bit. I went shopping yesterday and bought seven dresses! Three are going to be a part of my giveaway and they are gorgeous. Be excited!!
the bird is SO cute! I love fossil anything. I feel spoiled!
 My grandma also bought me a couple books and this is my current book at hand. I've had so much time to read and it's divine. I have missed reading so much.
I am also reading the Teen Vogue hand book!! My grandma bought me this as well and I LOVE it. I really have no idea if I will ever go into fashion, but reading it is really inspiring. Especially the journalism, design, and photography sections :) you should all pick it up!
Cruising forever21 today, I recognized this model....think about it...where is she from??? it was then that I realized that it was Nicole from America's Next Top Model! The petite season! Eeee. After some more research, I found out that she is modeling for Forever21, Urban Outfitters, and Free People. How cool is that!?!?!
I started watching Parenthood at one in the morning last night, and I am falling in loveee. It's so funny! Lauren Graham will always hold a special place in my heart after I obsessed over her on Gilmore Girls!

Well I suppose that's all I have for now. I'll post again soon! My giveaway is ALMOST ready and I'm SO excited. I'm planning on buying two more dresses, completing the set to five dresses!

Love always,

My mom and sister read that book and said it was amazing!!! I have had it on my desk for a week now, they're both insisting I read it! Maybe I will after I complete the one I am currently reading.

Danielle said...

You are just SO CUTE!!! I adore this outfit. And YES to the boots with the skirt!!! And your grandma seems so sweet! Sorry about the cold weather there. At least it gives you some more time to wear your cool tights, right? Or do you wear those all the way into the summer?

I must admit, I definitely prefer dressing for warmer weather... but this outfit is adorable. I don't understand why the weather has been so weird lately!

By the way, I really do enjoy those boots with the outfit.

harajukuloveee said...

those booties are simply amazing!i love how they look paired with the tights.ive been looking for some similar ones for a while now, but the only places where you can find that kind of uniqueness is in vintages hops or thrift stores,, too bad i have long feet !
where i live the weather is pretty discusting too.. were in june,doesnt seem like it!
hope your bf will have fun,
and if you miss him, youll just be happier when he comes back!
